Newcastle United v Brighton & Hove Albion Match Preview

 

Newcastle United and Brighton & Hove Albion line-up against each other tonight on Tyneside and both teams will be desperate to collect all three points and boost their European ambitions.

 

European credentials

Newcastle and Brighton are both aiming to boost their European credentials and neither can afford to drop points when they lock horns at St James’ Park tonight. Both sides have been providing their fans with some thrilling football this term and the indications are that we will be in for an exciting clash this evening.

 

No room for complacency

This promises to be a pretty evenly-fought encounter and the chances are that it will also turn out to be a rather feisty encounter below the floodlights. The home side are on the verge of finishing in the top four after an excellent campaign, however there is no time for complacency given that Manchester United and Liverpool are both close behind.

 

Games in hand

Brighton scuppered Arsenal’s title ambitions when winning 3-0 at the Emirates in their last outing and as things stand they sit in sixth position in the Premier League table. They have two games-in-hand over the sides immediately below them and they will certainly be eager to make these count.

 

Bookings galore

There have generally been plenty of bookings in clashes between these two sides with the last six meetings producing a total of 24 cards, therefore we’re going to side with this being the case tonight. The line has been set at 3.5 and this seems right enough to us, however the evidence suggests that it will be over this in this clash.┬áReferee Robert Jones has been dishing out an average of 4.08 cards in each top-flight game that nee has been in charge of this term and in a game where defeat could prove costly for either team, the likelihood is that tempers could flare at St James’ park.
